Misaka 9982 is having a very interesting day!
Welcome back to more Railgun S here on Metanorn! I can’t tell you how freaking excited I am for this episode since the last episode left off with Misaka finally seeing her clone for the first time along with a quick shot of Accelerator at the end? I will try to contain my excitement, but anyway time to start up the review of episode five with Highway joining in for some fun talks!
Hello for Episode 5 of Railgun S! Misaka finally ran into her clone at the end of episode 4, and we’re going to see how she reacts! Thanks to Fosh for letting me join him today!
My electric clone can (not) be this cute
Misaka 9982 super slapping powers are insane!
Fosh// Before I talk about Accelerator I have to mention the first half of this episode because it followed more of a comedic route thanks to some character interaction between Misaka and her clone. Personally I just loved how real it felt between them because I have two younger siblings that I tend to argue a lot with, but for Misaka and this is all brand new to her. So what was your favorite clone moment? I can’t really choose my favorite because I couldn’t stop laughing during the kitten rescue, fighting over the frog badge and of course the part with the mint ice cream? Damn there are a lot of fun moments between the two of them; however with the end of the episode it made me feel quite sad for the Misaka sister!
Highway// This episode was really a tale of two halves. First was the cute and semi-trollish first half, where MISAKA continually thwarted Misaka’s attempts to find out what was going on, primarily because she couldn’t answer the challenge password. But they did get free ice cream out of it, or at least MISAKA did. But the second half really did change the tone of the show, as could be expected.
Accelerator loves to play tag
Accelerator-”Tag you’re it!” Misaka 9982-”I hate this game, Misaka says while eating rocks.”
Fosh// Yes indeed my favorite villain from the words of Index and Railgun is finally back in our daily lives to cause harm to each and every Misaka sister he can find, but how long will he stick around for? I assume that he will only be around for a few more episodes until Mr. imagine breaker arrives to give his usual speech before punching someone in the face, but in this current timeline I don’t think she knows about Touma right? My mind is a bit cloudy on that subject right now. Ever since we got introduced to Accelerator I have always wondered what would happen if Misaka ever fought him? Would she win or do their unique powers interfere with each other making it impossible, but I always figured he wouldn’t kill off the original because whoever is running the experiment needs her DNA to create more clones or does Accelerator not consider the real version to be a threat? Honestly I don’t remember much about her previous encounters with Accelerator other than I recall her saying something about not being able beat him in a one on one match?
Highway// I think everyone knew what we were getting into in this second series of Railgun when we found out that they were doing the Sister’s storyline, but I don’t know if this was what I was really expecting. Maybe it’s because my memory of Accelerator is tempered by his actions in the Last Order storyline later in the first season of Index, but geez, what an asshole. I do remember when watching Index that his status as ‘the’ Level 5 they’re trying to uplift to Level 6 probably didn’t help temper his sense of ego and entitlement, nor his personality, but the amount of brutality and inhumanity on display here was quite a bit more than I expected. I really thought it was out of character for Railgun as well, and I can’t say that I really enjoyed it.
Extra fun with Railgun S
Those hands are used to shock her enemies!
Accelerator is so smooth~
or he just doesn’t care what you have to say.
I was waiting for Accelerator to bust out in song during this scene.
Well this was a really interesting episode with Misaka meeting her first clone while spending an entire day with her, but the ending was quite depressing because Accelerator wasted no time in literary taking the clone apart with his bare hands! That said I think we all knew that was going to happen anyway right? So what did you enjoy more this time? Accelerator showing his evil mug or did you enjoy watching Misaka get trolled by her clone? For me I felt the whole episode as a whole was very entertaining and that song at the end made me feel like I was watching a Railgun movie! I assume we will have a few more episodes of Accelerator versus Misaka until Touma arrives.
Quite the stunning episode, and at least a little out of character for this series. Also out of character for Railgun was that we had yet another episode where it was all Misaka. Yes, it was Misaka and MISAKA, but when all we see of everyone else in the cast is 3 minutes of Ueharu answering a call from Misaka, again I worry that the series is losing the focus of what I liked about it so much. I do realize that the fighting with Accelerator is not the place for Ueharu or Saten or even Kuroko, but I have to admit I find it a little disappointing to me that the storyline is basically turning the series into Index. It also doesn’t help that we basically know where this storyline ends, so I don’t know how they’re really going to deal with that in a new manner. Disappointingly, I find myself just hoping they get through it quick, and that’s not really a feeling that I like to have with a series.
You made Misaka angry! You should feel bad Accelerator!
Misaka versus Accelerator! FIGHT!
